Thanks in Advance. This fan belongs to a friend of a friend and he is trying to identify the fan. The markings look to be perhaps Japanese, but I don't know the language and could be wrong. It has Licensed by Westinghouse on the front badge.

Perhaps the model is TF14 ??

It has some type of plastic blade that has a crack on the hub of the blade and is probably dangerous. After we find out what this fan is perhaps someone has a blade they would part with.

Thanks ~ Dan

Are you sure Austin? Because I didn't think that Thailand used 100-110 volt AC Electricity, I know Japan Does, but I'm Pretty Sure that Thailand just like China uses 220-240V AC. The US, Canada, Mexico and Japan are the only Countries in the world that use 100-120V AC the rest of the world uses 220-240V AC.

I figured it had to be Japanese because of the 100-115 Volt AC Markings on it which is what Japan uses and that looks like a Domestic Model for Japan (one that wasn't meant for export).

KDK(Kawakita Electric Company) is my bet, as they were thick with Westinghouse.

Tatung made fans in Taiwan and sold them throughout Asia. I got Taiwan mixed up with Thailand.  Also those characters are far from Japanese. Fact Jack :up:

This is the same brand that made these that can be found quite often in America.

Yes, but was that company using that logo back when this fan was made? Just because the logo looks similar doesn't mean it is the same company, You would have to have a translation of the label to make sure. And also Taiwan doesn't use 110 either, they use 220 as well, so it wasn't meant to be a domestic model, and neither was it meant to be an export model to North America because if it was meant to be an export model to North America the label would of been in English or French not Chinese or Japanese (or whatever it is on there and actually Chinese and Japanese are a lot more similar than you think, because Japan got started because a group of Chinese people settled the Japanese island (back then it was just an unnamed island) sometime around the 2nd or 3rd century AD, so the Japanese Language is Actually based upon the Chinese Language with several modifications, so as far as your assumption about the language on the label being far from Japanese goes, it's completely FASLE!

 Yes, but you notice though that most of them were NOT originally meant to be exported to America because they have 220 Volt AC power supplies, and they were brought over by people who came over here from another country (in the case of the first example it came over here from the Philipines) It wasn't until probably the 1970s when they started making export models (right around the time we started seeing Dumping on our shores which was what drove all of our Domestic American Manufacturers out of business, even Westinghouse was eventually killed off by the very companies they were "licensing" to) More than likely the fan in this post if it really was made by Tatung was more than likely made for the Japanese Market and not for Export to the American Market since none of the other countries in Asia except for Japan use 100-115 Volt AC household Current.

The fan Dan posted never was sold here nor was any other Tatung until the 1970's and 1980's. Also if you read what I posted I stated they sold them throughout Asia so voltages varied. Also where can you prove that Taiwan doesnt use 110 volts? If you looked that up you would have found that Taiwan's standard voltage is 110-120 VAC 60hz and use similar looking outlets. Only difference is that they are not grounded.

 Also Chinese, Japanese, and Korean all use completely different symbols and characters so yes they are far from each other. Even the Chinese language is split up in two (Mandarin and Cantonese) People who only speak Mandarin wont understand people speaking Cantonese and they are from the same country.
